The B.F.A. in Film and Television Production provides professional education in a liberal arts environment, a combination that prepares students to be creative film and television artists who understand the social, cultural and historic context of film and television language while developing their skills in one or more areas of production. Upon acceptance to the major, students must choose cinematography, directing, editing, production design, sound design, or writing and production to pursue for their advanced area of study requirements. However, they are still free to take classes in other disciplines.

Students pursuing a major in film and television production may only use up to 6 credits of internship coursework to satisfy elective requirements within their major.
